It depends on the jurisdiction and the state legislation where you are.

Some countries who have abolished capital punishment still keep this as as the ultimate sanction for treason.

Even where it is not used the punishments are usually very severe and rightly so.

Many see it as the most profound crime against the state.

If you were accused of treason in the 14-1600's, you usually were not given a chance for a trial, unless you were titled or important. Normally, you were just hanged or drawn and quartered.
